Have tattoos gotten so trendy they appeal to seniors? Are they the next hip expression of defying old age? Or are they something that people pursue when they are secure enough to not care what anyone else thinks?

In any of these cases, the answer could be yes if you are talking about actor Sylvester Stallone. You heard me right… Rocky Balboa, aka Rambo, now has tattoos.

flavin portraitThe portrait of third wife Jennifer Flavin which adorns Stallone’s right shoulder and upper arm is the work of Mike DeVries, owner of MD Tattoos in Northridge, California, a tattoo artist known for his specialization in portraiture.

The portrait was done in July of 2007. Around Jennifer’s face are three brightly-colored roses (one purple, one gold, one red), which symbolize Stallone and Flavin’s three daughters Sophia, Sistine and Scarlet, each of whom bears the middle name “Rose.” The 60-something-year-old actor decided to get the tattoo in honor of his and Flavin’s tenth wedding anniversary.

Stallone has said it took about twenty-five hours of chair time to complete. The tattoo on his right shoulder was expanded into a full sleeve and chest panel sometime in late 2007 or early 2008, adding a tiger to the mix.

It’s an action piece, and will co-star a who’s who of other actors: Eric Roberts, Jason Statham, Jet Li, 50 Cent aka Curtis Jackson, Mickey Rourke, and a cameo by Arnold Schwarzenegger. None of the ink is makeup: Stallone has expanded his tattoo work to two short sleeves with chest panels.

The work on his left shoulder was done by famed tattooist Mario Barth. A Las Vegas newspaper reports Stallone was spotted in Starlight Tattoo located at the House of Blues in the Mandalay Bay Casino in Las Vegas in July of 2008, going over some new designs with artist Mario Barth.

Barth’s personal web site shows a picture of him working on Stallone. The designs include some eyes on the chest, a very busy background swirling up over the shoulder and some sort of large image on the left upper arm that I’ve not seen a clear picture of yet.

Sylvester Stallone has this portrait of wife Jennifer Flavin on his shoulder surrounded by three roses for his 3 daughters, whose middle names are all Rose.

We can’t deny that Usher is pretty fit, even if he did bring us Justin Bieber.

He has an array of 5 tattoos, the wackiest is a break dancer who is doing a head spin on his right shin – street!

He also has his name inked onto one of his bicep’s in a cool graffiti font with a sword going through it – just in case he ever forgets who he is.

Usher’s left sleeve tattoo is meant to have a special meaning behind it; rumours have it that it’s a message to his ex wife, Tameka Foster Glover Raymond.

The design is said to be an image of the Roman goddess “Lady Justice.”

Does this mean justice in love will prevail in Usher’s case? Guess we’ll have to wait and see!

Usher is sporting a brand new tatt, which he proudly revealed while on the red carpet of the Vegas Mag event. The streets are buzzing that he may have done it as a message to his future ex-wife, Tameka Foster Glover Raymond.

Is that the “Scales of Justice”? Dayum….Usher ain’t playing!

That means, Tameka will finally get her day in court under a judge that (hopefully) isn’t financially connected in anyway to the legal counsel for her ex-husband.

And from what I understand, all orders previously issued under Judge Lane, (ie the order for Usher to maintain “Primary custody”) will be re-tried under another judge.

I’m happy for Tameka. Hopefully she will get the legal recourse she seeks and the son’s of the couple can gain some type of stability.

Joint custody isn’t a bad thing… considering it’s what they had before USHER filed seeking sole custody.

Hopefully the two can finally manage to co-parent instead of battling each other.
